Critic Reviews

Liked
The First Purge completely earns its action-packed and rousing finale, but getting there certainly takes a while.
— William Bibbiani (TheWrap)
Didn't Like
Clumsy attempts at comedy are weaved in to try and alleviate the remarkable grimness but all it really does it add to an uneven tone.
— Benjamin Lee (The Guardian)
